Since celebrating its official topping off ceremony earlier this year, the continued installation of cladding for BLVD Developments and Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Code Condos is having a big impact on the aesthetic of the 9-storey, Hariri Pontarini Architects-designed condominium development on St. Clair Avenue West, just east of Spadina.

When we last provided an update on the project's construction back in January, the cladding had been applied to floors two through five, with the first floor and upper four floors still exposed to the frigid winter elements. In the weeks since, cladding has sealed off the sixth floor and is now being applied to the seventh floor above.

The image above highlights the development's main exterior design feature, a series of terra-cotta hued vertical piers that help break the building up into multiple volumes while providing a visual contrast to the building's window wall glazing. In the coming months, we can expect to see the first panels of glass applied to the building's balconies, which along with the remaining window wall glazing will complete the building's exterior aesthetic.

The completed project will add 108 condominium units and 10 two-storey townhomes to the Spadina and St. Clair area. Residents at The Code will enjoy Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting Inc-appointed amenity spaces situated on the development's second floor, including a gym and lounge area and an outdoor terrace.
